Welcome! Being that this is my first post, I should probably note my intentions. Like many, I am at a loss as to what I will be "blogging" about. Basically, this space will be a place where I share interesting issues or finds. From linguistics to statistics, this blog will be a semi-heterogeneous mixture.
So, here we go.
The title of this entry was influenced by an article I found on the NYT:
I should give a little background info on why I would have such a fondness/interest in the semicolon. Basically, my 8hr-long work day consistents of editing media pieces, grantwriting, etc. For many years I have always been intrigued by the use and misuse of this beauty and charmer. So, naturally, when the a semi-colon is used correctly, and with good taste, I find myself quite pleased.
